From Commitment to Action: Policies to End Violence Against Women in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Del compromiso a la acción: Políticas para erradicar la violencia contra las mujeres en América Latina y el Caribe

The report identifies the progress made in institutional approaches to tackling violence against women in the region and will contribute to the knowledge base on implementation of national policies and plans and will be an important resource for many countries in the process of formulating, implementing and evaluating their own public policies and plans.

It additionally presents promising experiences developed by some states in the areas of prevention; care; punishment; and reparation of violence against women and provides recommendations to address the critical bottlenecks persisting in responses to violence against women in the region.
